This could be a large range of issue and too many to list for someone who may not be a skilled technician. I strongly suggest having a tech check it out as it may get into removing freon or more to make the repair. Sorry for the news.

SOURCE: Beeping Ice Machine

I have a Hoshizaki KM-250BAF that is making 3 beeps then pauses and them makes 3 beeps again. If I unplug the ice maker and plug it in it continues to make the 3 beeps. The manual does not mention anything about beeps. Can anyone help?

SOURCE: hoshizaki ice machine repair?

is water pump running? is sufficient water in the sump? they harvest when the harvest thermistor says lines are cold. lack of water and the thermistor gets to cold to quick and a premature harvest. no water or pump over plate and it gets to cold to quick. the water over the plate keeps temps up till ice can form. good luck.

SOURCE: Ice machine is only making flakey size ice.

sounds like there is a problem with the water in the sump escaping. Sometimes, the plastic grate under the evap plates break and pieces get stuck in the dump valve. It is a triangular piece that the pump attaches to via a hose. It is spring loaded and the pieces prevent it from seating, thus, water leaks into the drain that you will not notice. When the water level in the sump gets low enough, it goes into a harvest and drops small slivers of ice. I'd check that out first.
Hope this helps.

Hoshizaki ice machine model km 900mwh low side suction line has ice building up on it all the way to the compressor


Is it making ice? Frost on this line is not that uncommon as it is colder than the air around it. Make sure you have good water flow over the evap plates. machine may just need a good chemical cleaning.

KM450MAB my machine makes a batch of ice then goes into harvest cycle and dose not come out of it, it gets realy hot. What can be the problem?


Probably the suction line thermister, this sensor should signal a timer in the main control board to initiate harvest. If the thermister is OK than there may be a problem with the control board

Beeping 3 times every 3 seconds


The 3 beeps indicates that the unit was in the freeze cycle for 60 minutes. Causes: 1.) Water valve leaking, allowing water to continually enter the system. 2.) Float switch stuck, sending false signal to board. This indicates ice not being produced. 3,.) Low freon level causing long freeze cycle. 4.) Hot gas valve leaking thru causing warmer than normal evap plates=low production. 5.) Expansion Valve not feeding freon properly to evap plates.
Items 1 and 2 are the most common. Number 3 possible due to freon leak in the system. Number 4 and 5 are usually a very rare occurance.
Hope this helps ya.

My walk-in's ceiling panel is dripping


The coil in the conditioned space is called the evaporator.
If the water droplets are forming on the ceiling around the evap, it is due, most likely, to the defrost cycle being too long.
Defrost cycle: compressor stops, evap fans stop, electric heaters in the evap come on to clear any ice/ frost on evap fins/ coil.
The ice/ frost melts and some of it turns into vapor. As it hits the cold ceiling surface, it condensates into water droplets. Defrost cycle could be too long. Usually 4 time aday and no longer than 30 minutes should be enough unless there is high humidity.
There could be another cause.
Normally, after a defrost cycle terminates, the evap fans do not come on, due to a delay control. This prevents circulating warm are due to the heaters. The compressor comes on and cools the evap down to, usually 20 degrees or so, and then the fans come on. What could be happening is, the fans are coming on too early and blowing the water driplet off the evap and onto the back wall of the unit.
A third item, is to be sure that the condensate drain is "P" trapped. The prevents warm, outside air from being drawn in and causing exess frost build up, thus excess water and vapor.

Good luck and hope this helps

COMPRESSOR WILL FREEZE A CYCLE OR 2 THEN STOP WORKING


a symptom of low refrigerrant is that the evaporator coil will develop a small very cold area but wont cool the entire surface .. that cold area can ice up and block air flow .. the result can be an overworked compressor with little or no cooling ... other things that can cause the same trouble
1. bad or blocked air flow on the external coils or condenser fan ..
2. a leak in the door seal will allow moisture that can cause icing

if there is icing then you can turn it off with the door open until the ice melts .. then start over ..
